Apache OpenJPA 2.2.0 available now!
The community around the project announce the next iteration of the Java Persistence Project
The community from the Apache OpenJPA project are proud to
announce their next update of their Java persistence framework –
This release, the first update since July 2011, has a number of
large enhancements. Most notable of these is
the newly enhanced DB2 Diagnostic interface, which
can be used to detect the causes of errors in SQL
exceptions. Over 100 bugs have been fixed in the
release too, which can see from the overview of
the release notes.
OpenJPA can be used as a
stand-alone POJO persistence
layer or integrated into
any Java EE compliant container and many other lightweight
frameworks, such as Tomcat and
Spring. This distribution is based on the
final JSR 317 Java Persistence API, Version 2.0 specification,
whilst remaining backwards compatible with prior releases based on
the Java Persistence API (JPA 1.0) part of Java Community Process
JSR-220 (Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0).
Thoughts have already turned to the next release stream, 2.3.x
but as of yet features are yet to be determined. You of course need
Java 6 as a minimum to get OpenJPA to work, and you can download it
